First Monday Made It of the SUMMER

It seems as though last summer I was on "it" a ton more than I was this summer. Well I've been on a staycation since the end of May. I've been mostly about 4 hours from home at my parents and haven't done much of anything. I think I like it this way. On to what you came here for... I'm linking up with Tara for my first made it and hopefully not my last.

I saw a picture on instagram of a picture frame and got inspiration to make a new first day of school frame for my kinders. I'm not 100% happy with how mine turned out, but it will do. I might redo it. My niece loves it. I went down to their house to make her be my model because she did most of the painting earlier in the day. She's headed to the 4th grade and so not a kinder baby anymore. #kindergram

In all my nothingness at my parent's, I've been able to whip up a few requested products (and for myself). If you follow me anywhere, you know that most of the things are mainly for myself. I have a hard time thinking about what others may want. Is that sad? I can only think selfishly about myself. I've finished up these.

The third thing that I finished up this week is my new class decor for my room. I. AM. IN. LOVE. Last year I had chevron and birds and didn't get tired of it at all. So, I thought to stick with my chevron colors and go with Melonheadz Kids because I LOVE them SO much. LOVE. I am so excited to have my room covered in this awesomeness until May 2015. I'm heading home tomorrow and cannot wait to start printing, laminating, cutting, and doing it all over. I have a love hate relationship with the process, but it's always so much fun in the end.

That's it! By the way - I AM GOING TO VEGAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just thought I'd throw that in there. :-) Have a great week.


  1. That instagram frame is so cute!

  2. Oh I LOVE it. I might need to borrow this idea.

  3. I change my theme every year. I also used the same colors you did and didn't get sick of them either. So, I am just tweaking my room as well. Love your classroom decor set. I'm going to Vegas too (OK, I live here but I'm going to I Teach K for the first time)!

  4. That IG frame is awesome!

    I love the bright decor you've made :)
